DIIV release three new songs off their new album ‘Is The Is Are’

 

Their much anticipated album ‘Is The Is Are’ is due for release in 2016 following up their debut album ‘Oshin’. It’s about time as it has been about two years already. The band have said that their new material is far more dark than their previous stuff. The song ‘Bent (Roi’s Song)’ is catchy and sharp with its guitar riffs, it definitely features some of that initial sound that DIIV unleashed in their debut album but with more maturity and tension, especially at the beginning of the song. ‘Mire (Grant’s Song)’ is quite the shocker though, because that’s where we get to see that darkness that DIIV are talking about. The vocals in this song seem to drone on in a haunting manner along with the gorgeous guitar lines.

 

To be honest ‘Mire (Grant’s Song)’ is probably the most emotional piece that the band have released, it’s actually one of my favourite songs by DIIV up to now. You’ve just got to admire the resemblance that they have to Sonic Youth here, it works out so well for them. They have a similar thing going on in their other new single ‘Dopamine’ but it is just as upbeat as ‘Bent (Roi’s Song)’. ‘Mire (Grant’s Song)’ stands out a lot and creates suspense for the rest of the other songs that are yet to be released. Below you’ll find the track listing for their upcoming album.
